The only con currently on the books is San Diego, not counting the
speaking gig at MIT in May. I've had several invitations but the
workload is such right now that I can't accurately predict what the
heck is going to be going on too far down the road, so to avoid
letting anybody down I'm just saying no until I get a firmer sense of
the ground I'm standing on.
Most of the projects to which I've committed over the last year are
now winding up -- I've finished on WWZ, the second draft of Lensman
goes in tonight, the script for Sunlight is finished, the script for
the TNT pilot is in its last stages of revision -- so now it's a
matter of selecting what projects go next into the hopper, a process
that will be continuing for the next month or so. There are several
very cool projects that have been offered, and one top-secret project
that is still ongoing, so we'll see which of those land on my desk.
I'm actually approaching a lull, which will give me time to work on
Forbidden Planet now that the new story has been approved.
